Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description

An updated jasperreports-server-pro package that fixes one security issue and various bugs is now available.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

JasperReports Server is a reporting server.

A flaw was found in the way the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser processed the SYSTEM identifier in DTDs. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file, which once parsed by an application using the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser, would lead to a denial of service (application hang due to excessive CPU use). (CVE-2009-2625)

This update also fixes the following bugs :

* Adding a user to any ROLE caused an unexpected exception.
(BZ#730712)

* Previously, the jasperreports-server-pro RPM spec file contained the '%{dist}' tag on the 'Release' line. To comply with the packaging and naming guidelines, the tag has been changed to '%{?dist}' with this update. (BZ#868927)

* In some cases reports were opened with an incorrect list of Entity/Entities. (BZ#842687)

Note: The jasperreports-server-pro package replaces rhevm-reports-server from Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager 3.0.

Users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects these issues.

Solution

Update the affected jasperreports-server-pro package.
